Newman Outdoor Field is a baseball stadium in Fargo, North Dakota. It is located on the campus of North Dakota State University and is the home of the independent American Association's Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks and the North Dakota State Bison baseball team.
The 4,172 seat facility opened in 1996. In 1998, naming rights were sold to Newman Outdoor Advertising for $1.5 million. Fargo based architect firm R.L. Engebretson P.C. worked on the design with RedHawks GM John Dittrich and Assistant GM Tim Flakoll and City of Fargo leaders.
The stadium contained the Maury Wills Museum in honor of the former Major League Baseball player who worked for the RedHawks as a coach and a radio analyst until the conclusion of the 2017 Season.
The first number retired at the stadium was the #8 worn by hometown hero Roger Maris when he played for the Fargo-Moorhead Twins in the 1950s. The outfield distances replicate those of Yankee stadium where Maris made history.
In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the field the sixth most underrated venue in Division I baseball.
The stadium was of the four hub stadiums used for the six team shortened American Association season in 2020. It was the hub stadium for the RedHawks as well as the Winnipeg Goldeyes.

  • The ball park is located on the campus of North Dakota State University. There was a $3 parking lot across the street from the stadium. It was a nice stadium but there was nothing special about it...

  • Orientation for the new employees went smooth. Can't wait for First Game!
  • Super nice employees!! My uncle is 90 and we had a long walk to the gate. He was tired and a security officer said he'd take him inside so he could sit down. How awesome was that? I wish I had gotten his name. I wont forget what he looks like though. Bless you! Very nice place as well. Pleasant night out.
